Now more than ever, AP ENPS Anywhere is the news production system for today’s multiplatform newsrooms.

Multiplatform integration
AP ENPS is designed to be the only system journalists need to create and publish content for multiple news platforms: broadcast, Web, mobile and social media. Start with any platform and quickly create multiple versions of a story anywhere you need it.

Collaborate with story-centric workflow
AP ENPS has a seamless, story-centric workflow that makes journalists more efficient than ever before. Create consistent story slugs at the planning desk that follow through to reporting, production and publication on any of your information platforms. Editors, producers, and reporters in all parts of your news organization are empowered to share and collaborate, whether in the same room or on the other side of the world.

A cornerstone of the story-centric workflow is the exclusive AP ENPS Storyboard. Storyboards are unique collaborative workspaces where you can easily find and share information, media and other elements of the day’s big stories. Producers and reporters simply drag and drop the information they need from a Storyboard into a story. Storyboards create an instant community of journalists working on the same story, enabling quick communication and ensuring everyone has access to new developments as they happen.

The right tools to tell a better story
The modern AP ENPS interface provides each user with the flexibility to control how and where content is displayed. Almost any window can be detached to use the extra workspace of multiple monitors. Windows can also be docked to the bottom of the screen for quick access when you need it. Side-by-side editing windows make it easy and efficient to create multiple versions of one story for different platforms.

  • The Dashboard lets you stay on top of what’s important to you. It has up to 12 windows that you can personalize to track real-time updates as stories develop and to watch new content arrive.
  • Drag and drop media from the field directly into AP ENPS, integrating it instantly to compatible media systems.
  • The enhanced wire viewer lets you easily save stories for later review and editing.
  • Never miss breaking news with the Alert Bar, which is always visible at the top of your screen. Internal messages and urgent wires remain right where you need them.
  • AP ENPS provides unmatched search capabilities - one query pulls up text, video, graphics and archives from anywhere in your system, including a single search across all connected AP ENPS locations.
